Waiting lists are maintained for Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
For the Year 7 Autumn intake, after the full number of places has been offered in accordance with the Admissions procedure, a waiting list will be established according to our oversubscription categories. Late applications will be considered in accordance with Surrey’s Co-ordinated Scheme and should be made direct to the Local Authority. As part of the initial intake to the school, applicants will automatically be added to the waiting list if they have not been offered a place at one of their higher preference schools. The school will maintain a waiting list in respect of admittance into Year 7 until the end of the Autumn term. At the end of this term, each Year 7 parent who is on the waiting list will be contacted and asked to confirm in writing that they wish to remain on the list. For all those who do confirm in writing, then this will be for the rest of the academic year. If a parent/carer has not put Chertsey High School as a preference for entry into Year 7, or if they were offered a higher preference school, then they will need to apply to their home Local Authority in accordance with the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Scheme in order to be placed onto the waiting list.
A separate waiting list is maintained for Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 in line with the oversubscription criteria outlined above for Year 7 entry. At the beginning of each academic year, all parents on these waiting lists will be contacted and asked to confirm in writing that they wish to remain on the list. For all those who do confirm then this will be for the rest of the academic year.
